DENISE MINA has been described by none other than Ian Rankin as the most exciting crime writer to have emerged in Britain for years.
She grew up in Glasgow, Paris, London, Invergordon, Bergen and Perth, working in a number of dead end jobs before studying at night school to get into Glasgow University Law School.
She is the author of thirteen hugely successful and critically acclaimed crime novels. Denise has twice won the Theakston
Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year.
Her latest, The Long Drop, is her first foray into true crime as it tells the dramatized tale of a meeting between the mass murderer Peter Manuel and the father of the family he has slaughtered.
